Cruising on the #Toronto Kajama

Become a master and commander, or maybe a dangerous pirate, on the 3-masted Great Lakes Schooner Kajama which even fires off its mighty canon on every cruise. The tall ship docks at Harbourfront Centre and features 1.5 hour cruises from the inner harbour and out onto Lake Ontario.
The tall ship has been operating in Toronto since 2000 and comes with a fully licensed bar and food is available on board. You can meet with the captain and help raise the sails. The ship also has canopies in case of inclement weather which is a good idea when the run from May to the end of September.
Allow 30 minutes for boarding and then the cruising fun begins. I am going out on the waters in late September 2013 near the end of the sailing season and I will be joined by Lovey, Professor and Mary Ann; so hopefully the weather won't start getting rough! Stay tuned for my review of the cruise.

"Step Aboard and Experience The Finest Restored Ship on the Great Lakes. Launched as the Wilfred in Rendsburg, Germany in 1930, the KAJAMA traded under sail for nearly 70 years. She was a familiar ship in ports from Northwest Spain, through western Europe, and as far north as Norway and Russia. In 1999, KAJAMA was delivered transatlantic by Great Lakes Schooner Company and restored to her original profile. Sail aboard the Tall Ship that was seen on the Amazing Race."
